How Tattoo Machines Could be Key to Treating Disfiguring Facial Sores and Even Curing Skin Cancer

Key West Lifts Ban On Tattoo Parlors

By Tom Blackwell  www.news.nationalpost.com Mention tattooing and health in the same sentence, and chances are the topic is one of the nasty infectious diseases — from HIV to Hep C — that can be transmitted by dirty needles. A new Canadian study, though, may be about to change that image, suggesting that tattooing equipment could actually be an effective new way to combat an array of skin conditions, penetrating deep enough to deliver drugs to the right cells, but not so far that the needle prods sensitive nerves. “It’s logical that it works…. But we were amazed” The just-published research found evidence that tattooing could greatly improve treatment for cutaneous leishmaniasis, a parasite that leaves millions of people worldwide with disfiguring, and often emotionally devastating, facial sores. It affects mainly developing countries, but even Canadian soldiers returning from Afghanistan have contracted the illness. The technology, though, could eventually have application in treating skin cancer, psoriasis and other ailments, speculates the scientist behind the project. “We were extremely excited, very surprised [at the success of the experiment],” said Anny Fortin, a biochemist who did the work at McGill University. “If you think about it, it’s logical that it works.… But we were amazed.” She cautioned that the initial study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, was conducted on mice, so there is no guarantee the results will translate into humans. The next step is further drug-tattooing work on pigs, whose skin is closer to that of people, and then to try ... Read More »

A Review on Jeff Gogue’s “tattoo as I see it”

By Nicki Kasper “In that moment, I realized that instead of trying to be inspired, I was going to try to inspire people.” I recently ordered two copies of Jeff Gogue’s DVD, “tattoo as I see it”… Jeff is one of my closest and most genuine friends and I wanted to support his project, something I know he and put a lot of work, time, money, energy and heart into.  I bought a copy for myself, and one for a close friend of mine – an artist I thought could use some inspiration.  I didn’t know exactly what the DVD would be like, but I know Jeff, and I knew it would be inspiring, as well as very giving with valuable information and advice to tattooers… I just now was able to find the time to sit down and watch it, and it doesn’t disappoint. I know Jeff in a couple different ways…  We’re friends; I know him on a personal level, and he’s fun, open, genuine, kind, generous, and hilarious. I’m also one of his clients, so I know him on that level.  I know how much he cares about his clients, about the pieces he puts on our bodies, about the pain we’re feeling, etc.  I know how much heart he puts into every single piece, and I’m grateful and fortunate to be covered in them.  But in addition to being a friend, and a client, I’ve also had the pleasure of working with him on side projects. I ... Read More »

Tarrah Wray: Jason Wojceik (RIP)

Jason Wojceik4

(A letter to TAM) My name is Tarrah Wray and I am writing you in regards to a tattooer from London, Ontario named Jason Wojceik, or ‘Addictive Jay’ as he’s also known. The point of my letter to you, is to respectfully request that Jay be featured in your magazine. He was owner of Addictive Tattoo, also in London, as well as being my co-worker, partner and mentor…. most importantly, he was a very talented and formidable tattooer. So I’m writing to be a voice to make him known to you. Jay was exceedingly humble, and because of my respect for him I’m doing this on his behalf. He had an unpretentious demeanor and had never put value into being eminent, or well-known, but after nearly 20 years of hard work, perseverance and amazing tattoos he’s amounted into a distinguished artist, and he was more than what I would describe as noteworthy… Read More »
